Humana Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results, Issues 2013 Guidance, And Announces CEO Transition And Recent Strategic Transactions

“Taken together, the three transactions we announced today unite key components of our integrated model, simplifying and enhancing our members’ health care experience.”

The company anticipates the cumulative impact of the transactions described above to be modestly accretive to its earnings for FY13 after giving effect to the related transaction costs.

Consolidated Highlights – Third Quarter 2012 Results

Revenues – 3Q12 consolidated revenues were $9.65 billion, an increase of 4 percent from $9.30 billion in 3Q11, with total premiums and services revenue also up 4 percent compared to the prior year’s quarter. The year-over-year increase in consolidated revenues was primarily due to related increases in the Retail and Employer Group segments primarily driven by higher average individual and group Medicare membership. These increases were partially offset by the company’s new South Region TRICARE contract being accounted for as self-funded versus fully-insured for the previous contract. This new contract became effective on April 1, 2012.

YTD12 consolidated revenues increased 6 percent to $29.57 billion from $27.78 billion in YTD11 with total premiums and services revenue also up 6 percent compared to the prior year’s period, driven primarily by the same factors as the third quarter year-over-year increase.

Benefit expenses – The 3Q12 consolidated benefit ratio (benefit expenses as a percent of premiums) of 82.2 percent increased by 150 basis points from 80.7 percent for the prior year’s quarter due primarily to higher year-over-year benefit ratios for the Retail and Employer Group segments. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in the impact of the benefit ratio for Other Businesses primarily due to the transition to the new administrative services only (ASO) South Region TRICARE contract on April 1, 2012.

The consolidated benefit ratio for YTD12 of 83.7 percent increased by 150 basis points from the YTD11 consolidated benefit ratio of 82.2 percent primarily due to the same factors impacting the year-over-year change for the third quarter.
